Am I the first to comment? Oh my. I love traditional quilts. There are so many in my head that I want to make, but know I will never have enough time to make, that I can't even think about the more modern designs.

I'd have to say I'm more traditional and love scrappy quilts - in fact was looking at one you did for AP&Q trying to see if I recognized some of the fabrics. I do however, like a bit of applique also. I'm looking forward to hearing your portion on Pat's show today, I listen to all of them.

Sandy D said...

I am a traditional quilter and also like reproduction and civil war fabrics and patterns

Renea said...

I love all things scrappy. Theses quilts are my favorite to look at and to make. I have been addicted to string quilts lately. Can't tell you how many I have made and still have not run out of "strings". I think they multiply at night. Thanks for the great giveaway.

I tend to lean towards traditional quilts, but make them with more modern fabrics. I like the minimaist look of many modern styles, but my scrap happy brain wants lots of piecing. Great podcast!

MollyP said...

I am a follower! Thanks for the opportunity!

Sharon said...

I lean towards more modern quilts with larger pieces.

Sharon said...

I already follow your blog and love it -- always so much inspiration.

Deanna said...

Scrappy and traditional--mostly. My tastes seem to evolve rapidly.

Brenda said...

I love scrappy quilts using 30's fabrics. Always a good excuse to buy more fabric!

Brenda said...

I can't wait to get the new Quilts N More! I never miss an issue. I listened to your radio show and can't wait to see "Mixed Berries"!!

Kim Walus said...

Thanks for all of your wonderful comments. It's been so much fun getting your emails. I've enjoyed reading about the different types of quilts you're all making.

Sandy D said...

I just finished listening to your interview with Pat Sloan. I did not get to listen "live" but I listened later.Good job you didn't sound nervous at all.Some good pointers too.I am looking forward to seeing Mixed Berries.

Lisa Marie said...

I like what I call "updated traditional quilts with modern leanings". That's a mouthful that may or may not mean something! I also like scrappy and try to add at least an element of scrappiness to most of my quilts.

Lisa Marie said...

I follow your blog.

Lisa Marie said...

I listened to the podcast. I'm looking forward to your Modern Berries quilt and your future patterns in magazines. I like your "organized chaos" concept -- sounds like a good fit for me!

Kim Walus said...

Sandy D.-Thanks for telling me I didn't sound nervous even though I was a bit nervous in the beginning but once I got started it was fine. I went back and listened to the interview again. I'm happy to say that I could listen without any pain. lol.

Lisa Marie- Thanks. I've used the "Organized Chaos" concept for years. Infact, I could even lay claim to it since I've never heard anyone ever use that terminology before when it comes to quilting.

Bunny said...

I love scrap quilts--the more pieces the better. The quilt needs to have some white in it though to make me completely love it.

annemarie said...

I love the traditional quilt especially patchwork.

annemarie said...

I listened to your podcast - great job!

annemarie said...

Anne said...

I am drawn to reproduction quilts.

Anne said...

I listened to the whole podcast. I appreciate your hints about paying attention to accurate and consistent cutting, piecing, and pressing. I prefer piecing on my Featherweight, so from now on, I won't switch machines "in mid-stream" while piecing a particular project. I am hoping that following your sage advice will enable me to enjoy the process and avoid wasting time ripping out stitches! Thank you.

Anne said...

I am a follower. After I listened to the podcast, I Googled your name and realized that there was a reason your name sounded so familiar. :)

Karen said...

I do like a combination of pieced and applique quilts - pretty traditional.

I have mainly been a traditional quilter, but blogland is helping me spread my wings. I'm trying some modern things lately. I guess you can teach an old dog new tricks.

Janet said...

I listen to Pat every week. I love her podcast and all the new people I meet or learning new things about people I follow. Mixed Berries looks like a fun quilt. I love Quilts and More magazine too. I always tell myself---NO MORE MAGAZINES and then I buy it. No will power!
